good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist
the engine light with protect could be on for a couple of reasons. if the coolant is low, it will come on and eventually shut off to protect the motor. if the oil is low, it will come on as well.
of course, I need to the code to narrow down the failure. it could also be turbo related based on the code.
